Help us raise £5,000 for Upper Norwood Library Trust by Christmas 2024! 

Our fundraiser:

Support Upper Norwood Library Hub's work tackling poverty, isolation and inequality in Crystal Palace by donating today. Let's make sure this valuable community space has what it needs.

We are celebrating the choir's fifth birthday this year. We are a community choir based at the Upper Norwood Library Hub and we’ve been there since day one. It’s not just a place we rehearse at - it’s our home.

The Hub's staff are incredibly supportive, which has been crucial to helping our choir survive through the pandemic and continue thriving today. It's not just a space for our rehearsals, it's a creative and social hub for our members and their families and that means a lot to us.

We are eternally grateful for their help and support. So, in our fifth birthday year, it’s time for us to give back and show our support by fundraising to support the Upper Norwood Library Trust. Palace Acappella will be fundraising throughout 2024 through our performances and some extra activities and the money we raise will help the Library Hub deliver its vital programme of services for the local community.

Hear more about why this matters to us from choir leader Eleanor Rastall in this video.

About Upper Norwood Library Hub

Over 58,000 people live in the Norwood, Crystal Palace and Upper Norwood areas, and the Library Hub delivers absolutely crucial services that make a difference in many peoples’ lives. It provides opportunities to learn skills, support with loneliness and isolation, it helps children fulfil their potential, encourages healthy and independent lives, and is a 'warm space’ in the winter.

It costs £270,000 a year to keep everything going through grant funding and donations, and the Hub relies on the kindness of its volunteers, supporters, and the local community. 

In 2023, Upper Norwood Library Hub helped over 2,300 people through charitable programmes, gave 586 free places to children on its camp activities, provided 99 people with support in managing household cost of living, had 300 community members attend education, wellbeing and arts classes weekly – and much more.

Let’s make sure this incredible community space has what it needs. Please support us and help Upper Norwood Library Hub today by donating to our fundraiser – any amount that you could contribute would be very much appreciated!
